Hiking in Ammiq Valley نزهة في وادي عميق Posted by on May 12, 2019 in Arabic Language, Culture, Geography

Marhaba readers! Yesterday, I went hiking in an area called Wadi Ammiq (وادي عميق) or The Ammiq Wetland. it  is the largest remaining freshwater wetland in Lebanon. It’s located in the West Bekaa Valley, Lebanon’s largest agricultural valleys.

Ammiq Wetlands

It was a five hour hike from the top of the mountain and through the wetlands. It was one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen.

The swamp lies on one of the most important bird migration routes in the world, and over 250 species of birds have been recorded in the area, like endangered Eagles and Falcons.  Other important mammals were recorded as well like the Jungle Cat and Ferruginous Duck.

Marhaba! My name is Anastasia, I'm Lebanese and I'm the new Arabic blogger! As the great prophet Khalil Gibran once said "You have your Lebanon and I have my Lebanon." For as long as I can remember, my country has been poorly portrayed in the Western media, so allow me to introduce to the magic, mystical, and breathtakingly beautiful land I grew up in called : LEBANON.

    Hi Anastasia,
    That walk, and the whole of the Beka’a looks excellent. Really beautiful.
    Will your next post be this text in Arabic?
